I'm interested in learning about the different areas of TUcson. I notice a lot of cheaper houses in the south end, is there more crime there? I have 3 dogs and don't want to be buying a house with a HOA, so where would be the best (and cheapest) place to look.
Thanks for your help!!!

You have three dogs and don't want an HOA. Is that so your dogs can bark all day without receiving complaints from the HOA? South end would be perfect for you. They don't need HOA's to settle their differences.

my dogs are DEBARKED. I would never make my neighbors suffer from my interests. And they weigh 7 pounds each (pommeranians) I just don't want to violate HOA rules. I might be under a misunderstanding but I believe HOAs don't like multiple dogs. I just don't want to be a bother to anyone. But hey thanks for your response.,..,.,

Most HOAs have restrictions on barking or nuisance dogs, not three 7 pounders with manners and a responsible owner, MyBookRoom.

From your posts it sure sounds like you'd be a perfect neighbor with or without an HOA.

Good Luck

I' m from Seattle and we don't have many hoa's so I'm not sure what they are. Up here if you have 3 dogs - even little ones, you have to take extra steps to accommodate your neighbors. So I figured I'd try to find a home with a little more yard or no HOA. I'm looking to move soon, and we still haven't figured out which state. lol. No work here.

As a general rule, MyBookRoom . . . the newer homes in Tucson have HOAs and smaller lots while older homes in more established neighborhoods have larger lots and are less likely to have an HOA.

There are exceptions and advantages both ways.

To answer your original question, yes, there is more crime in South Tucson.

Every HOA is different. Most don't care about the number of dogs as much as they do about the appearance of the neighborhood: cars on blocks, trash in the yard, peeling paint, missing shingles, etc. In fact, I'm not really sure too many HOA's regulate the number of dogs you can have unless you're in a condo or patio home community. Otherwise, it's the city ordinances that limit the number of animals per household.

Homeowner association - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

This might help explain HOA's a little better than I can. They're not the boogeyman, they're really there to help keep a neighborhood at it's best and to make every owned home in the neighborhood conform to the same set of expectations. That also helps keep property values even as you don't have the eyesore home among the neatly kept ones. Ideally.
